Does the condenser fan start? If not then check your circuit breakers or fuses. If the outside fan is running then check the capacitor. You can check it with a multimeter that has the capacitor check function. You can also look at it and see if it looks expanded. That's a good sign it is bad. Take it with you to get a new one. If it's good then your compressor may have an overload that needs to be reset or the compressor may be bad. Look at the circuit board in the outside unit to see if there are any flashing lights. There should be something printed on the board close to them to tell you what the different sequences of flashes mean. Let me know what you find.

Compressor low pressure triped


If the compresor, overheats, then compresor it's not good, make sure that there is a safety cycle on. Explain: there should a click when compresor starts if you hear a click again within 30 secs. is a confirmation that the compresor has weak coils, and needs to be replace. If this is not the case, make sure you are not using an extention cord to run this unit, maybe wire are overheating.

Refrigerator tries to come on but doesnt


Probably you heard a click on and off when the compresor is trying to start , that could be the relay or the compresor went bad .Try replacing the relay (no more than $30) If the compresor doesn't start is either burned or stuck and has to be replaced.

Fan running but dont hear comp. turning on


First check for burned wires in all the componnents in the condensing unit ,also the compresor terminals ,if they're all ok and if you know how and have a tester check the compresor if is not burned or grounded. After that you can replace the capacitor (is no more than $20) and if still won't start it means the compresor is either burned or stock.You can also try to put a start booster in parallel with the capacitor ,sometimes it helps it to start.

HELP! Frigidaire Fridge FRS26HF7BB0 losing coldness and buzzing


That noise is typical when the compresor is trying to start but it doesn't , it could be the condensing fan motor that doesn't work and the compresor goes off on overload ; a common problem with this compresors is the relay (mounted at the side of the compresor behind a black plastic cover) goes bad , this you can replace is about $20 , and if still the compresor won't start you will need to put another one and this is an expensive job.

Frigidaire for Kenmore Freezer-Compressor won't start


Set the thermostat to the coldest and check if there's power to the compresor relay , if yes the relay or the compresor are bad (in this case replace the relay which is the cheaper first step ,but if the compresor still won't start probably is burned out) If there isn't power to the compresor put a jumper wire to the thermostat if the compresor runs replace the thermostat.

Freezer or fridge stopped cooling. Can not hear compressor kick on


If the compresor is trying to start and it won't you 'll heard a click and the compresor will be very hot ,that means that the relay is bad or the compresor is stuck or burned and needs to be replaced, but first before replacing the compresor try with the relay (no more than $20).But if the lights and fan inside the fridge work and the compresor won't start and is not hot ,the problem is in the cold con trol (you can put a jumper wire between the two wires to the cold control and if the compresor starts thats your problem) after all this if still the compresor won't start could be that the timer is stock in the defrost position.

Fridge freezer not working/power ok,


If the compresor is very hot and won't start,the clicking you heard is the overload at the compresor that goes on & off beacause the relay ,that makes the compresor start is bad or the compresor is bad ,if you know how check the compresors coil if not try replacing the relay with a same replacement(no more than $20 or $30) if still won't start the compresor needs to be replaced.

Condensor fan runs but the compressor wont start


Either you have abad comoresor or abad compresor relay ,i will try to replace the relay first(if you don't have away to check the compresor) wich is cheaper (about $20 for the part)If doesn't work the compresor is burned or stuck.

Turns on...clicks every few minutes....never gets cold


It looks like the compresor is trying to start and goes off on overload ,it could be a bad relay or a bad compresor.Try first replacing the relay located on the side of the compresor under a black plastic cover(ALWAYS UNPLUGGED THE FRIDGE BEFORE DO ANY WORK) if that does not work you need to replace the compresor.
